11:05 am
progress at risk with their activities which are not focused on defeating isis russia's interests in syria are russia's interests that comment caused quite a widespread reaction with many saying that it was the pentagon that flooded syria with weapons many of those weapons ending up in the hands of extremists and terrorists but russian foreign minister sergei lavrov also raised his own counter criticisms he said that it is unacceptable that some member nations that sydney human rights council not ready meaningfully to condemn international terrorism in any of its forms he said it's an except to build a separate terrorist into good and bad categories especially where the division is based on the declared goals of these terrorists or who their financial backers up but also said that russia will continue to back syria as it clears its country its territory all of these extremist. regardless of what flag they're fighting on
11:06 am
the. part is more against the of reporting there were let's get the thoughts now professor of political sociology from the american university of curry he's dr saeed today and he's very welcome thanks for coming on to r.t. this evening firstly just to get your reaction to what that u.s. general said he claimed that russia is being both arsonist and firefighter in syria what are your views on that. well we have to understand why you first americans in syria they have not been officially invited by the legitimate syrian government in damascus they have no business to be inside syria they have no business in providing our american meat. to not only the syrian rebels but also foreign mercenaries who are working inside syria to topple the regime since two thousand and eleven. this is who is playing with fire the one who
11:07 am
was doing that was file is old was providing weapons who is providing who is financing them who is providing media coverage for them and trying to show that what is happening in iraq is. is a big must of innocent people were asked what do you what the. about what they care about is the those whom they had supplied whom they had financing whom they had been breathing in the last few years and now they have lost the war but they don't have the same to admit that they lost the war to was do they just keep on bargaining and making all those claims but the truth cannot be hit in any way and i think a lot of people in the area began to realize what is the story behind the war in syria the story behind the war in syria was that gas coming from a caused by force so that it reaches you and undermine the russian gas supplies to
11:08 am
europe this is the whole issue it is not about islam it is not about extremism it is about guess it's against war but we shouldn't get serious about islamic states isn't it because they're a global problem that it took a foothold in syria the u.s. the syrian government today is not doing enough to counter islamic islamic state he think many people believe that. the syrian government is defending. it's own capital the syrian government is using one of the worst operations for supported and finance and why many regional and international powers it is also facing a big international campaign to discredit it to demoralize it as if the syrian government is a want that the sawing not palm invade. nuclear weapons in japan and the one responsible for all the destruction in the middle east from libya to iraq to yemen
11:09 am
. again we have to go back to two thousand and eleven and how this syrian government will sift sufficient in many many ways there was a lot of popularity for the regime don't expect to be the. democratic haven like you up on the west. in the west emerged after many centuries in the middle east it is still emerging and the people according to the circumstances you cannot compare the situation the situation in syria with sweden all of canada all australia but at the same time what what was happening in syria at that time before two thousand and eleven was therefore like what is happening today we never saw half of the half of the syrian population refuse all over the world we did not see the destruction of syria like what we seem to be if you look if anybody is looking at the scenes from syria today you are looking like who is she. you are not looking at the city look
11:10 am
at what happened also to tripoli libya what happened to evoke what happened to yemen is that american democracy that you want to impose on the area. again you want to destroy the area and you claim that this is the moccasin no this is the structure and you and you and you and on the pretext of human rights and democracy women's human rights we're all the syrian people today side. thoughts on this we're going to have to wrap it up but there was a dr site cd can he's a professor of political science the only g. at the american university of cairo i thank you. now there's been plenty of talk about eastern ghouta to you on a social media with journalists and commentators sharing photos from the conflict zone however in our report and everything is as it seems. two heartbreaking photos posted with the words this is syria except it's not actually syria one is from mosul in iraq and the other is from the israeli bombing of gaza
11:11 am
now it's been raised in the comments that it's not actually syria but regardless this post by some guy in cleveland has tens of thousands of reach we decided to find out how many people here in new york would be ready to reach wieder share this with jury tweet that. i led i don't typically use twitter but. maybe you know it just seems sixth like very politically motivated without have any having any serious message behind it i definitely wouldn't i mean. just because there are horrors happening everywhere and i don't know if twitter is the proper forum for it anyways yes i would and why i'm half palestinian and this is the same thing that's going on in my country interestingly and this is mosul in iraq and that is gaza. so it's not actually syria you know but it's equivalent the same type of things are going on in syria it's kind of just inform and it might not be you know to a t. informative but it's getting the message across that even if these pictures are
11:12 am
someplace else it's ok do you think that you by that i mean to some extent yes if you think that it actually it's like taking initiative then i feel like the pictures don't really matter i think the real issue is scary and sad enough that we don't need to you know misinformed people to have real journalism to have real information and verify you know content with this be fake news have a fake i mean part of why i don't use twitter is because of the information fabrication that exists and also has it in about facebook for its exact reason you can't trust anything anymore and it's a sad state of the world now the saddest part is that some commenters say they don't actually care what they say people are dying in syria aren't they facts don't matter that's how things are in the post truth world caleb mop and artsy new york. in other news this evening the russian olympic committee has not confirmed that the international olympic committee has reinstated russia as
11:13 am
a full member. read the statement was tied to the. russian athletes who participated in the winter olympics the letter we received today says the i.o.c. is able to confirm all remaining results of the olympic athletes from russia. because it is huge news for russia and certainly a step in the right direction as we all know russia has been involved in a long running doping scandal accused of state sponsored doping and there have been huge repercussions because of that one being russia being kicked out of the international and pick committee so this decision is absolutely key for the future of russia's future global sporting activities if we look at another result of the alleged doping is going. to state sponsored doping many of russia's experienced athletes in the winter olympics just gone by in china were unable to compete compete and those who were allowed to compete could only do so under the neutral flag and they weren't allowed to play the national anthem if they won medals so
11:14 am
they were mainly newcomers and they didn't do too badly actually they were seventeen medals overall sure i mean this isn't just a short stories i mean this is a long journey that russia has been on trying to get reinstated. looking back at the last you know russians out to complete independence there so it's taken a long time hasn't it for this to finally happen yeah there were expectations that russia actually was going to be reinstated during the games but actually what happened was two out of one hundred sixty nine of the competitors were found they tested positive actually for doping crucial netsky and so. this of course affected the closing ceremony as well the fact that those two did test positive originally they were going to be allowed to wear the flag during the closing ceremony but that was banned as well. but the decisions being made they've ever come up minor hiccup and they have been reinstated into the international olympic
11:15 am
committee it's not the end of the road andy because. also is the ongoing problems with usada they were banned by water that's the russian anti doping agency and waters the anti doping agency that is at a stalemate at the moment there's a dispute going on we saw a lot lost its accreditation because of this ongoing saga russia has disputed the mclaren report that's the report that basically states that there was this alleged systematic state sponsored doping i should deny it what evidence is that russia basically accept those findings so that it's ongoing but let's focus on the good news it means athletes in the future from russia will be able to compete with with their flag and the national anthem in. there speaking to me yearly well i also discussed the issue with russia baseball show host alan moore he believes the focus of anti-doping agencies will now shift away from russia to their own respective
11:16 am
countries this is something that i think how to happen because most of the guidelines that the i.o.c. set down for the russian victory to be have been met and i think that it's very very good news for sport in general because you know ok there were two very loose for russian athletes but we know big quickly quickly took care of themselves which i think showed a great deal of respect for europe experience that these people were removed from the camp right now there are dissenting voices there are people who are a little bit angry does too soon versions of the service they would see it in any case are no punishment would be too harsh for russia from their point of view simply because as long as the russians are the bad ones their houses or even order but now we've got to start to look around and see who else is a little bit dirty. now still to come the belgian government decides to make it easier for police to raid refugees but it does spark
11:17 am
a backlash from have the details on that just off the. everybody i'm stephen ball. hollywood guy suspects every crowd american interests george bush and r.v. . this is my buddy max bemis financial guru just a little bit different. no one knows with all the drama happening in our country i'm shooting the brood have fun every day americans. and we start to bridge the gap this is the great american. moment we've had the period of fake the flame. engineer by all the central banks of
11:18 am
the day don't have the control that they think that they have and once you start to see this being picked up in markets like the gold market and others you know you've got to start to see it feed on itself in a big way. welcome back the belgian government is facing a backlash over plans to make it easier for police to raid homes and refugees the draft bill will being considered it would help to says private home suspected of sheltering unauthorized migrants shouted to be meets one local who suffered a right. when the new tourist jungle camping cali was torn apart thousands of migrants scattered many came here to brussels it was meant to be a pit stop instead for many it's become
11:19 am
a permanent as belgians have opened their arms and their homes to my currents though for some that's brought its own perils five o'clock in the morning i heard the door. was kind of a shocker with sleeping in so i wake up with a look and i ring flow in my belly and i can the nurse a nurse who is it is ok but i had no idea were you really i didn't know throughout the governor friendly and i saw seven man and one woman coming in the door pushing me aside going to her but asking me are you along yes i am a lot it was the case but really they went into the lobby when the the other side wanted to see if nobody was i would really have the impression i was a terrorist that something truly terrible happened sixteen year old mohammed migrant from sudan is the reason the police came around six months ago he was sleeping rough at brussels maximillian park if police going to park my somalia here
11:20 am

11:21 am
a transit point that thousands had already passed through fearing that a new callee could emerge the government began a program of raids and arrests well for now mohammed has a roof over his head it looks like the government is making a new play in a bid to evict migrants like him it's due to vote on plans to allow police to search private homes suspected of sheltering unauthorized migrants that's provoked outrage oh god yet some are worried that while many migrants are in need of aid others have more sinister looted some terrorists have used fake i.d.'s some terrorists have posed as michael and seeking asylum what concerns do you have about letting people into your home of course the risk of zero does not exist so i cannot tell you that i will be one hundred percent
11:22 am
sure that they are not the hardest of course but the process of maker and that after our eyes is so little. foote a new york hosting mohammed has so far been a rooting experience for mohammed it's changed his life how different is your life now compared to what it was just a few months ago three hundred sixty degrees like the serbs and like that. every so often. i health family. i mean the family and really for me for me. or for me i have for i was. i have fidel despite his good fortune mohammed says his family back in sudan always in his heart. so now while you are there were ever a lot while they were laying over here

11:25 am
only people who had been talking about no go areas were alternative for germany and they were bound mocked for doing so are common enough that's all guns are lying can you as a woman walk alone on vaal show streets on a weekend evening would you do it will pause for show or nearby streets and then they say and make it look like we are the aggressive ones they say bad things about the city no what we do is look at things. in perspective what we do is simply address facts and facts only ladies and gentlemen. but here's the thing in order to secure a ruling coalition angela merkel has been trying to wean over the right wing of her conservative alliance should try to secure that for the chancellor she may well be thinking that taking a step towards the sunshine policy of alternative to germany could help get those hardliners back onside with peter all of our. german media
